    Glad to hear it, Carl! As for culture tips... Mine has grown all around a 6" basket. It gets very high light, and watered 3-4 times a week. They like more water than other catt alliance plants since their water storage capacity is pretty minimal. I really don't do anything special for it; it pretty much grows itself!

    Stunning!!! Great growing!

    I love this cross as well and it's something everyone should find some room for. When I started growing, Little Stars was one of my first flask-babies, sent as a freebie (in an order) in a sandwich baggie with agar still on its roots. Mine is in bud now, I'll have to remember to take a photo if I can figure out how to remove it from the pillar it's escaped onto.
